Our division is focused on breast, lung, ovarian and rare cancers.

We are working to understand normal organ development and the problems in this process that give rise to cancer, with a view to discovering new therapies.

We have also established an extensive bank of patient-derived cancer samples for preclinical studies. These enable us to explore new treatments, study how cancer cells respond to drugs, and understand why drug resistance occurs.
